Wakunaga of America Co., Ltd.

Company Description
The corporate philosophy of Wakunaga is a commitment to research and a mission to serve public health. This mission is accomplished by providing products of the highest quality, which are supported by truthful science and accompanied by helpful consumer information. The company has an outside and inside sales staff, as well as two nutritionists, available to answer retailer and consumer questions on a daily basis.

Wakunaga is a leader in the field of scientific research with now over 700 peer-reviewed published papers on Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract’s™ ability to lower cholesterol, slow plaque formation, reduce stress and enhance immune health. A new Australian study has found that Aged Garlic Extract significantly reduces blood pressure in adults with hypertension, offering hope to those who don’t respond well to prescription medications or would prefer a natural therapy.

In our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, we use stringent quality controls and follow current Good Manufacturing Practices including the International ISO9001 quality management system, which results in products that are safe and effective. With distribution in 48 countries worldwide, it is Wakunaga’s continuing mission to promote good health throughout the world.

The production of Kyolic odorless Aged Garlic Extract begins with garlic grown on Wakunaga farms under strictly controlled organic conditions without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Raw garlic is aged, without heating, up to 20 months in stainless steel tanks. This unique aging process makes Kyolic up to 50 times richer in active beneficial compounds than raw garlic and is gentle on the stomach. This odor-eliminating conversion process, results in the truly odorless Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract that contains safe, stable, bioavailable and beneficial compounds.

Major Products
Studies have shown Kyolic’s ability to enhance immune function, protect cells from free radical damage and support cholesterol and overall heart health. Wakunaga’s other products are Kyo-Dophilus, human-strain, shelf-stable (no refrigeration needed) probiotics. The company’s probiotics are guaranteed stable at the time of consumption, not just at time of manufacture. Kyo-Green energizes and alkalizes (also available in this category is Harvest Blend and Kyo-Chlorella), and Moducare delivers plant sterols and sterolins to restore, strengthen and balance the immune system.
